I have a few questions about security on my ubntu 12.04 LAMP server (newbie)
This is what I´ve done so far:
I am also using Cloudflare which has some security features out of the box.
But should I install some sort of antivirus on my server?
(I only have outgoing email, eg users register on my site and gets a email link sent) So I am blocking all INCOMMING emails to the server by loopback-only.
Should I block ping-requests to my site?
Or is it not a problem letting people ping my site? ping mysite.com ...
Off-topic, my server seems to do a reboot on its own every sunday morning 7am. I havent started this my self with cron-jobs or so, but is there a way to disable it from doing self-reboot every sunday morning? Mostly coz some settings gets lost after a self-reboot has been done.
Lastly, I am running a cron-job to do a run a function by calling:
Is it safe to use this method
?secretKey=8934958398457 then using php to check "secretKey" value and then run the
cron-job if its equal to "
Is there anything else I should do in order to make my server more secure?
Thanks in advance!
